Take a look at this awe inspiring new piece of Horus Heresy cover art from series artist Neil Roberts.

That's right folks, two fallen primarchs facing off against an army of near-indestructible eldar revenants – awesome.

The eldar have been strangely absent for most of the Heresy, not that you can blame them. Just look at what happens when they try and take on the Emperor’s finest.

The primarchs themselves are the imposing giants in this picture. Army of Wraithlords or not, the eldar are going to have a hard time taking these two down.

If that’s got you geared up for more Horus Heresy action, you won’t have to wait long to enjoy the next book in the series.

  1. What? The eldar are getting their a$$ handed to them by TWO guys. I mean, they are primarchs and all, but still, that's sad. However, the artwork is amazing!

    2. They're primarchs. In game terms, they're practically invincible demi-gods. Fluff-wise, those Eldar deserve having their 'a$$ handed to them' for thinking they could actually win this battle.
      Anyone know which primarchs they are? I'm guessing Fulgrim and Perturabo, but I could be wrong.

    3. Considering in one of the books with Space Wolves (can't remember which one, battle of the Fang I think), it was debated during the battle whether a Marine was even able to kill one. No matter how wounded he was.

      In other books, primarchs have done some amazing things, like killing multiple titans. Others like curze, plummetted out of the sky through the planets crust and into the mantle, all as a child.

    4. Think about it like this... It took a primarch to kill another Primarch through out most of the Heresy... So a couple of Eldar aren't going to stop them. Most of the Primarchs practically took over their worlds without power armor just growing up so you add power armor to them, most wore terminator armor, and you've got someone who IF they get hit through their armor really isn't feeling the wound anyways.

    5. Primarchs were supposed to be genetic children of the Emporer to help rule and conqueror the galaxy when the old man retired. However during the primarchs gestsation a warp strom scattered the primarchs to human settled planets by the chaos gods. Their hope was to have the regular humans corrupt the primarchs(which succeded). So if the emporer is the most badass being and he had like 20 babies, then their gonna be almost as strong as him(or so the laws of genetics say)So yes these Primarchs are very powerful physically.

    6. I disagree. I think his artwork is very amateurish. It lacks Composition and colour theory. it lacks proper focus or proper atmospheric perspective. All the blacks are the same no matter how far away the subject is. Everything goes from pure black to brightest white unless it's covered up by that big ugly splash of green. The thing that stands out most is the purple guy who isn't the main subject which I would guess is supposed to be the biggest guy in frame only because he's just that. The biggest guy in frame. The only thing his images have going for them are some nicely build 3D models. But the effects and the colours he slaps over top of them are just hideous. Needless to say I don't like his work much at all.

  2. They should make primarch modoles as collectures edition modoles or have them be used in a horesy heresy expansion. Now that i think of it, warhammer 30k would be pretty cool, where you could use horus and the primarchs as well as the emperor before he became all "zombie" like.

    1. They do, go on ebay man and search primarchs, nice models but expensive. I have A horus and leman russ models, and they are VERY cool.

    4. Yeah some third party companies have done some models but they're not official GW models if that's what you're looking for.
